According to Dr. Ali Masykur Musa there are some big challenges to create a just and prosperous society, the first is overcoming poverty, increasing productivity, increasing competitiveness, reducing inequality in good governance and institutions that are clean and effective.
“Today, however, inequality between regions is still high, for example in Java where the poverty rate is only 10.1% by contributing to 57.0% of the country’s regional income through GDP in manufacturing, trade and construction industries. The difference is when compared to Kalimantan, which is a region with sources of mining, industry and agriculture but only contributes 5.7% to GDP “explained Dr. Ali
